    Nah! I've only got softies and to be honest I've never had trouble with any type of trigger with soft corals. The only fish that showed an interest was the Tassle Filefish which a few months ago had a few good nibbles on the largest softy in my system grrrrr. It hadn't touched it since and the big softy is currently recovering well.

    Porky had turned into a proper character and is rapidly becoming a chunky monkey! My missus loves it also and it happily takes clams, cockles & mussels from her hand!

    I went to Oasis today for a bit of a "mooch" (as you do) and purchased a couple of pieces of flat live rock as I need to move the LH rock work around to make a good size cave for the Clown Trigger as with his gut he us struggling to get in his current cave! He keeps digging the sand to make more room and doesn't half make a bloody mess!!

    Oh dear! I think I'm in the process of losing my Harlequin Tusk fish. It didn't come out to feed yesterday, so I went for a look in the rocks & found it wedged in a corner! I've rescued it and put it in the quarantine tank. Its been in there for over twelve hours. It hasn't fed and its breathing is not laboured or 'owt! Its all a bit odd! Its just sitting there on the bottom, now and again it moves about a bit. I'll just have to keep my eye on it. Before you ask I've checked water params' and everything is OK. All other fish acting and appearing OK. Odd!
